DAX Inmonth result brings back last month instead of current month

I have this calculation that by a filter of Product, if there is no product for the current month it brings back the previous month, i dont quite understand how its doing it but if there i no result i just want it to bring back 0 rather than using the last months figure

In Month Revenue = CALCULATE(
SUM('Registrations'[MRR]),
FILTER(
'Fiscal Date',
FORMAT(MONTH(NOW()),"MMM") = 'Fiscal Date'[Month]
&& YEAR(Now()) = 'Fiscal Date'[Fiscal Year] )
)

If I took the time to answer your question and I came up with a solution, please mark my post as a solution and /or give kudos freely for the effort 🙂 Thank you!

That's kind of odd. I created a table "Registrations" with MRR and Date columns and a Fiscal Date table with Date, Month and Year columns, related Fiscal Date to Registrations on the Date columns and actually got back the sum for January even though it is currently February and even though I had data for February. Will have to take a look at it more to understand what is going on and not even sure if this simulates your model correctly. However, I was able to correct the issue by using this formula:

```In Month Revenue = CALCULATE(
SUM('Registrations'[MRR]),
FILTER(
Registrations,
FORMAT(MONTH(NOW()),"MMM") = FORMAT(MONTH([Date]),"MMM")
&& YEAR(NOW()) = YEAR([Date])
))```

So, basically, just used the Registrations table and removed the date table from the mix.

that works great as a work around, let me know if you figure out what issue is, im still prodding at it, but its a wierd one, do you think its a bug?

I also posted on SQL BI and Marco Russo suggested i create a calculated table  but alas im using direct query mode
